I too like cheese.

I melted cheese on chicken for dinner. Then I wrapped it in a tortilla because cavemen can go shove their pre-agricultural diet up a mastodon's ass.

when my bro got involuntarily committed, there was the government issued giant black man-child who was peaceful 90% of the time and then required 8 strong men to restrain him the other 10%. as is also mandated by law at public looney bins, he had a few catchphrases to wit: "I can FLY! can YOU fly?" and "I LIKE CHEESE!!" thus it has been something of a family joke for many years now, and can be used to punctuate almost any remark or silence. "I LIKE CHEESE!!"

I met an old high school friend who's in town from Minneapolis tonight for beers, and a grilled cheese truck was parked in front of the brewpub. The pulled pork grilled cheese ("The Gangsta") was excellent.

The line break after \end{comment} doesn't lead to any whitespace in the output for hope"? Huh.

Also:

Nevertheless, I have the vague idea that it was somewhat ridiculous, perhaps even shameful and disgusting.

I think this means you've now become an Ishiguro character.

5: nope. In practice there's no difference in general, I think between:

"\end{environment}more text here"

and

"\end{environment}
more text here"

.

I have verified 7 for the enumerate environment in xetex & pdflatex. I really don't want to grade.

In general, single line breaks don't affect LaTeX, you need a blank line to add actual white space to the compiled document.

re: 5

LaTeX generally takes the view that you, qua aesthetic idiot, are always going to cock up layout and whitespace, so best not to let you do it unless you really really desperately want to.

This sounds like it should be a metaphor for the afterlife.

OT:

I assume I'm the only person here unfamiliar with the Bad Lip Reading videos on youtube. Or, I mean, who was unfamiliar with them until 20 minutes ago. But now I'm bitter than the rest of you didn't tell me about these things previously. This Rick Perry video cracks me up. As do all the others.

I'm only posting this in case there are any lurkers out there who, like me, hadn't seen these before.

I'm probably the only one here that watched Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. "I Like Cheese" reminds me of it, my favorite modern animated show, although Cheese was probably my least favorite character.

Hello folks. Just here to say that if I've ever read a sentence that started better than this, I don't remember it right now. Also, I would like an application to join Alameida's family. It sounds like mine, with a better sense of humor.

Yea, it ended up being the protest party in NZ, and so rattled along for a while longer here, and avoided the worst of the anti-Semitism inherent in any theory about banks and usury etc. It's also exhibit A in `engineers out of politics'.
